Look What I Won!!

Wow, look what I won from Laurie over at Bargain Hunting and Chatting With Laurie!


Recently I received an email from Laurie to be sure and watch her Digital Slideshow from her Valentine Party entries. So I watched the cute show designed with Smilebox software and was so impressed with the movie and then came the drum roll announcing the winners and there was my blog being selected by the random generator. I had won a cake stand that converts to a punch bowl. I felt so special and excited!


Then one day this week, I came home and there sitting on my porch was this box. I told my husband "that must be the cake stand I won."


I could hardly wait to get it inside the door and start opening the box.


It was just like opening gifts at Christmas. Now there was another box inside the original box.


 Wow here it is, a fabulous cake stand from Laurie!!


Taped to the second box was this lovely note from Laurie.


My mind immediately began to race, how could I feature the cake stand this weekend. I didn't think I had time to bake something to show but I knew I was going to work on my Spring decorating. Now I had a plan for the cake stand!




I placed it on my server in the dining room and added my silver candlesticks and aqua pillar candles.



Then I added some grass, eggs and tied a raffia bow and Wala, look how  gorgeous my cake stand from Laurie looks, and just in time for Spring.


I thought a rabbit should be pleased to sit beside such a lovely cake stand.


I am truly honored to have won such a terrific prize from Laurie at Bargain Hunting & Chatting With Laurie. See if you can follow my story in the mosaic. Start in the upper left corner.



Thanks so much Laurie. Here is a link to Laurie's blogWho cares if it was a random generator, I am so excited - Judy

Wow that is great. I have one like that. You just gave me a good idea. I let all my roses from Valentine's day dry and now I think I will use them for a little show piece. Congrats on your win. I love to get those little pressies.
